Depiction of Religion in Hindi and Urdu Drama Serial: A Comparative Analysis
The study investigated Hindi and Urdu drama serials to demonstrate how the religion is being portrayed. The results of this study suggested that religion was never been a main theme in both Hindi and Urdu drama. The findings reveled that Indian dramas are more possessive about the religion and its importance in the human life. Through the content analysis by using the lens of social learning theory the finding concluded that in both the countries the religion is not being presented as main theme however Indian or Hindi dramas serial are found more tilted in depiction of their religion. The story revolves around the family matters by keeping the religion as an important element, but not the main element in the drama serials. Indian dramas are giving their religion (Hinduism) as a priority role in the main story, but we can’t see this in Pakistani dramas.
